Black Cherrie Management presents entrepreneurial skills seminars in the North West Province.
Black Cherrie Management will hold entrepreneurial seminars aimed at empowering small business owners, in the North West Province. Under the theme ‘Up your entrepreneurial skills and increase your bottom line’, the seminars seek to encourage entrepreneurs on how to harness their innovative ideas and turn them commercial. They are also expected to empower aspiring small business owners as well as provide a ‘refresh’ session for more established business owners across the province.
The Aim Of The Programme
“The whole aim of the programme will be to ensure that delegates leave these sessions highly motivated, confident and ready to face the next chapters and grab the available opportunities,” says event organiser Lerato Molete. She says the event will equip attendees with tools and solutions to run their businesses efficiently and effectively.
Business owners will also learn how to treat their talent as professional businesses that generate income and create employment and thus contributing positively to the country’s GDP. The small‚ medium and micro-enterprises (SMMEs) is one of the key sectors of the SA economy. The government, through the Ministry of Small Business Development, is putting measures in place that are aimed at growing this burgeoning sector.
With SA’s high unemployment rate, entrepreneurship has been widely acknowledged as an important driver for poverty alleviation. The SMMEs industry is expected to create 90% of the jobs required to meet the National Development Plan’s objective of 11 million jobs by 2030.
“For the purposes of resonance, successful speakers from each region in the province will be invited to share their journeys with entrepreneurs,” says Molete.
